One of the former Kansas City Chiefs greats has called it a career. Brian Waters, a six-time Pro Bowler, announced he has decided to retire.
Waters played in Kansas City from 2000-2010, playing on some of the best offensive lines in
franchise NFL history. He joined the Patriots from 2011 and last season signed with the Cowboys shortly before the season. In 10 of his 13 seasons, he started at least 14 games.
Here is Waters statement (via Adam Schefter):
"After a long and wonderful career I have decided to retire. I want to thank the coaches, players and fans of the three great organizations that I had the pleasure of working for. First the Dallas Cowboys for giving me my first and last chance of working in the NFL. I will always be grateful. Also the New England Patriots for the most successful season in my career. It was a great ride. Lastly, the Kansas City Chiefs where I had pleasure of enjoying eleven wonderful seasons, which I will never forget.
"I want to thank the many family, friends and my hometown of Waxahachie, Texas for being great supporters. Finally I want to thank my kids for being my greatest motivations. I fought hard daily to make you proud me. If the rest of my life can be half as good as the last 15 years, I will be one of the luckiest people on earth. Thankfully Brian Waters."
Waters was so good for so long that I'm sure some of you have at least wondered if he would come back and play for the Chiefs this year.
